You’ve had an accident at work; how much compensation for a chemical burn can you get?
If you have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. As Dame Esther Rantzen, consumer champion says ‘If you were injured and someone else is to blame, you should be compensated.’
If you work with hazardous substances your employer has a duty to protect you from harm or injury at work. This means providing you with full training, monitoring your health, performing regular risk assessments and providing adequate protective equipment.
If your employer has failed to protect you and you’ve followed all the rules but still been injured, you have a right to claim compensation.
How much compensation for a chemical burn sustained at work?
The amount of compensation you may receive depends on many different factors, including the extent of your injury, the duration of your suffering and how severely you are affected in your daily activities. This includes things like washing, dressing, preparing meals and looking after any dependants you may have. Loss of earnings and any costs incurred during treatment for your injury also need to be taken into consideration in deciding the final claim amount.
